Best time to go on Tanzania safaris
The best wildlife and mountain climbing safari experiences are got during the dry months of the year. This means you should schedule your safari for such months. The driest season begins in June and stretches till late October. A drier one starts in December and goes on till late February. Travelling during such months will some how guarantee you the best weather condition. You will see huge herds of wildlife because they roam freely around Tanzania national parks and other protected areas. This is not the case with the wet season because these animals tend to take shelter from the rain, which makes it hard to spot them. And even if you spotted them, they will not be as much as they would have been during a dry day.
Much as visiting during the dry months is recommended, this is Africa. This country is an all year holiday destination. If you visited during the wet months, rain could soak the soil but the sun will suddenly come out to dry it and life moves on.
What to do on your holiday
